Dear Future family,
I do not know who you will be or how we will meet. But what I do know, is that I will meet you. That I will care for you with the deepest conviction. I know the struggles of life and I know the hardship that can come with love and family. I know that nothing will be perfect but, in my eyes you will be. You will be the perfect example of what life can bring of what life should be. Life filled with those you love and moments of grace never wasted. Life filled with the laughter of joy and tears of happiness as we watch times change and us grow. You will be my everything and my anything. You will be the reason I rise in the morning and smile, the reason I push myself past my limits to better improve our lives and myself. To give us the freedom to be a family twenty-four-seven. Not just a family on the weekends when we have days off from school, work, business, or whatever it may be. We will be each others enhancements of ourselves, we will be the light that shines when all we see is darkness. And I, I will do everything I can to make sure we live happily and openly with our hearts. I will leave nothing undisclosed between us, our struggles will be shared. Shared to help each other, shared to strengthen each other, shared to love each other that much more. I will listen each of you. I will listen with compassion and discipline, I will listen to the simple things you find enjoyable, to the tough days you will have dealt with. I will not to allow the small problems to become big problems. I will freely communicate my heart, my desires, my struggles. To keep us open and intact at all times. Yes, we may hit a rough patch, but all things need tending. There is nothing that will keep me from putting a smile on your face and warmth in your heart. We will have late nights with movies, days filled with laughter, days filled with talk of our most memorable moments. Days where we will cry, either it be from mistakes, loss, or happiness, what ever it may be, we will remain a family. I will always keep you in my heart, even when I am buried beneath life and my passion. You will never be second in my life, all decisions I make will never be without your thought, without your sentiment. We are more than just individuals, we are a family, a bond that can never be broken and should always be growing. With each passing day I will make sure we do not go without knowing the love we have for each other. I will learn the small things that make you happy, I will learn the things you like and those things you have distaste for. From your favorite color to the dislike of red skittles.
There is nothing that will keep us broken, angry, or filled with resentment. All things that come at us, will pass. We will be strong in mind and strong in soul. We will find adventure in challenge and faith in the darkness. We will speak of times that almost broke us, only to speak of how we surpassed it like flames built in the cold. Like the seasons of earth, we will have seasons in our time together. But no bad times shall permanent. And we will make the good times thrive beyond the bad. We will understand our mistakes and grow from them. We will plant seeds of hope and watch them flourish as we venture through life. Watching our family become our living paradise. And I will place a kiss upon my family that will shelter us from the harms of the damned. From the lies the world speaks. But we will not be a weak family nor a harsh family. We will be a lasting, durable , and loving family. Like the trees in the coldest winter and the sharpest winds, we will not fall. We will stand tall and gain strength from the bitter days.
My future family, who ever you are, where ever you are, we will be blessed and I shall infinitely be grateful for
Your future husband and father.

A Wanderers Inn I have been traveling for thirty days. My horses are weak and I thirst dearly for water. My belly aches as hunger constricts my gut. I am fearful of death in such an unsuitable way. I have always seen myself dying in daring act of life. Be it in war or the saving of a child. Or maybe, even in the defeat of a dragon as I get one last blow with my blade before it strikes me down and it falls to its death beside me. Feeling its last breath of heat roll over my body as our eyes see only our fading souls. I have always thought my death would be glorious. Yet here I am, traveling alone with no more rations, nor water. My horses no longer walk with fervor but lackadaisical steps. And so I pray to find shelter before the cold takes us. Before the empty plains of barren trees and darkness finds us. I wish not to be detritus before my days. Decaying slowly to the maggots as my body lays helpless upon the earth. Becoming a gruesome vision of what lies inside. B
The Moles Never Learn I found myself walking in the snow, my head aching with a sharp pain. I feel the back of my head, there is something crusted upon the rear of my skull. I dig my nail carefully into it. I can feel the crust collect beneath my nail like dirt. As my feet trudge through the sixteen inches of snow I look to my nail and there in my nail is blood. Dried cells of my body. Upon seeing this I become confused with worry. I place my hand once again upon my bloodied skull and began to examine it. I slide my index finger like the bristle of a broom, back and forth trying to see what wound had allowed such blood upon me. But after several seconds of feeling about, I find nothing. No scratches, no lacerations, nothing. My worried confusion musters down to mere confusion. I rub my eyes as I am strangely held with a slight daze. As if I have been interrupted from a deep sleep. And the evening air is not helping my situation. I am comfortably wrapped for a day tr
The Blameful Two The world broke as their hearts bled the shadows of their misery. Seeping upon the world, flooding with the scars of agony. Their eyes trembling beneath the moonlight as their blood stained hands shimmer. Their lips sewn as each is caught in a lie. Both bare, exposed to their duality. Their curtains drawn thus unmasks the bodies they have slain. The skeletons of truth dragged through the spoils of deceit. Each, unwilling to speak. Their cheeks flush in rose petals. Their skin taut to the anxiety of their arrest. They are now the victims of themselves and each the other. Two hell's preached in the underbelly of their weakness. The fraudulent thought in avoidance of pain. And now they stand as nude as the beginning of life, Adam and Eve. Shaking, they are without words. Silent, bearing only tears that fall to the blood soaked floors. The dark whirlpools of hypocrisy. Neither is without sin and neither is without murder. Their souls weep dearly a
